John Dalton

The Peter F. Dalton Foundation was created in Peter's memory by his son John in 2011. 100% of the proceeds go to endeavors that reflect Peter's values. The Foundation has been growing and we appreciate everyone's support. Below is a brief summary of the causes we support.  More information can be found on the 'About PFD Foundation' page.

The Peter F. Dalton '65 Memorial Scholarship at Norwich University was established in June 2011. The scholarship is awarded annually to a financially challenged student who is a member of the Corps of Cadets and majoring in Business. Peter loved his family, his country, business and mentoring others. As of August 2019 the Foundation has awarded 15 scholarships and the fund continues to grow every year.  

The Foundation is pleased to also continually support The Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation. It is a fantastic organization with an important mission to provide college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.  At their most recent November 2019 Gala in Riverside, CT they raised over $3 million dollars! 

Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation honors the sacrifices of our fallen military heroes by ensuring the success of their children through college education.  Since 2002, Fallen Patriots has provided more than $30.2 million in total assistance, including college scholarships and educational counseling to over 1,500 military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.  Nearly 20,000 children from all across America will need future assistance.  Help today by visiting www.fallenpatriots.org. 

The Robert Michalski Track in Memory of Peter F. Dalton Jr. was completed August 2014. Pete was a beloved son and brother and passed away in 1985. Pete attended Xavier High School in Middletown, CT and ran on the track and cross country teams.  Running was special to Pete so we thought it was only fitting to continue our support of the school and help out with their new athletic complex. The new track was dedicated on September 12, 2015 - thank you to Brother Brian and everyone who has supported the endeavor. The Foundation also maintains a scholarship at Xavier in Pete's name.
